I’m writing today’s post from beautiful San Francisco. My best friend Sarah is getting married and I’m her Maid of Honor (Matron just sounds too…um “sophisticated”). So far it’s been a wonderful trip- shopping, drinks, massages, sleeping in, and excellent food. 2 nights ago I tried out a great vegan restaurant in the Rockridge area called Millennium. The coconut curry was to die for. And yesterday, Sarah and I went to the always-talked-about (at least in my online world) Veggie Grill. I’ve heard of this place through posts on Facebook and such, but unfortunately, they don’t have one in Michigan. After having their Quinoa Burger, I’m really hoping they consider my home state. As I sip my coffee and overlook the beautiful terrace and view of the mountains, I’m feeling incredibly lucky to be here. I also can’t wait to go on my next food adventure! I’ll keep you posted.

So onto this week’s recipe! Once I started making my own dressings I never needed to buy a store-bought bottle again. I love knowing exactly what’s going on my salad, as opposed to the strange ingredients you might find in bottled dressings.  Out of all the dressings I made, this is my all time favorite go-to salad dressing. I always have these ingredients on hand so it’s always super easy; my husband even learned how to make it and he rarely cooks, so you know it’s got to be easy. =)

Add all ingredients to a small bowl. With a small whisk or spoon, stir until combined. Drizzle on salad. This Sweet Mustard Salad Dressing will stay fresh in the fridge (in an airtight container) for about a week.

  • The mustard called for here, is that something out of the baking aisle or the condiment aisle? It wasn’t until after I had mixed something from the condiment aisle in that I wondered if that’s really what was meant…

    • Hi Sherwood- the mustard I use is in the condiment aisle. It’s by the yellow mustard; the only difference is it’s whole grain so it has seeds mixed in. So good! =)

      • Whew! Glad to know I was on the right track here. The mustard I used had ground whole seeds (so there’s specks, but not whole seeds). Would you recommend mustard with intact seeds? Do you have a brand you recommend? I’m not sure I saw any that had intact seeds, but I didn’t look too hard.

        • I would think any type of mustard would taste good, as long as it’s more of a dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard (and as long as they have seeds or “specks” instead of smooth). I usually use Trader Joe’s Whole Grain Dijon Mustard but I also have Inglehoffer Stone Ground Mustard in my fridge. Both taste great! I hope this helps. =)

          • It does. Thanks! I feel far more comfortable with this now. 😀 Just had some with my salad earlier. It’s rather strong, and a little goes a long way. I appreciate that. It lasts longer this way. lol
